National Poinsettia Day

There is a day dedicated to the beautiful red Christmas flower, but how did this plant become associated with the holiday?


Legend says that a little girl in Mexico was sad that she had no gift for Jesus.  She was poor and could not buy anything.  An angel told her that any gift given with love was good enough.  So she picked weeds from the side of the road and laid them at the manger.  Those weeds soon bloomed into beautiful red stars.  



The plant first came to America in

Backyard Birds

It's the time of year I put my bird feeders back out.  I only feed them in the winter when food is not easy to find.  Feeding them otherwise makes them easy prey for predators - they become too reliant on humans to feed them rather than forage as they were intended.  But I love to watch them any time of year!

All of these birds were either in my front or back yard - but I did not feed all of them.....
